Seems that in a few places around the country, including Las Vegas, there are SECRET COURT CASES going on.
Some of the people involved are Jared Shafer (possibly tied to Harry Reid), Harry Reid, Sheldon Adelman, and the Roman Catholic Bishop of Las Vegas, among others.
From the Las Vegas Review Journal --
As if written with invisible ink, dozens of lawsuits filed in Southern Nevada courts virtually have disappeared after judges decided they should be hidden from the public. Along with the dispute described in each lawsuit, also kept secret are the outcomes of each lawsuit, the name of the judge who sealed each case, whether the plaintiff or defendant had asked that the lawsuit be sealed, and any explanation by a judge for abandoning the fundamental principle that courts shall be open to the public.
... under the Nevada Supreme Courts highly controversial Whitehead Decision of 1995, Nevada judges now claim authority to try any civil case in complete secrecy, without explanation or notice to the public. Since 2000, Clark County judges have sealed 115 cases. Though those are a small percentage of all cases filed, litigants involved tended to be wealthy and influential in business, politics or the courts.
Included in some of those cases are:
Included are William McBeath, president and chief operating officer at The Mirage and chairman of the Metropolitan Police Committee on Fiscal Affairs; Stephen Cloobeck, developer of the Polo Towers on the Strip and a member of the standing committee of the Nevada Commission on Judicial Discipline; Feld Entertainment, the former production company for Siegfried & Roy; Lorraine Hunt, former lieutenant governor and Clark County commissioner; Jared Shafer, former Clark County public administrator; Venetian Casino Resort [NOTE: This is Sheldon Adelman]; Rio Properties; Hotel Ramada of Nevada, former owner of the Tropicana; KVVU Broadcasting, the Fox television affiliate in Las Vegas; the Spearmint Rhino strip club; the Roman Catholic Bishop of Las Vegas; and Beckley Singleton, a longtime Las Vegas law firm that at one time had U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid as a shareholder.
We are in target rich environment. Couple more embers and it all goes up. Thank Rusty Hill, his appearance gave me another ton of leads.
At this point in our country, anyone who obeys the law is out of their mind.
RICO, RICO, RICO.
You know, you're right. Obama now considers laws "suggestions" when he feels like it. The whole fabric is being shredded.
WHOA! Probably a 10th amendment state’s rights issue in the criminals/socialists “charter of negative liberties”.
Harry POS Reid ALERT, again!
The Law Defends Plunder
But it does not always do this. Sometimes the law defends plunder and participates in it. Thus the beneficiaries are spared the shame, danger, and scruple which their acts would otherwise involve. Sometimes the law places the whole apparatus of judges, police, prisons, and gendarmes at the service of the plunderers, and treats the victim when he defends himself as a criminal.
The Law - Frederic Bastiat
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
Too much of that in Clark County these days.
Nevada looks very corrupt.
“Nevada looks very corrupt”.
I am pretty sure anywhere there is legalized gambling, there is corruption.
OK, a slight understatement. Hee.
No more so than any other state. It’s just that we are fed up and we’re going after them. Maybe if DC would get swallowed up in a sinkhole it would speed things up.
Anywhere there is a politician there is corruption.
Corruption and rot everywhere.
Do they mean Sheldon Adelson?? I’ve never heard of Sheldon Adelman.
One clever soul gave the best answer: "Elect them!"
Too much of that with Barack the First.
Shine that little light around!
